CE testing that will get your product to market faster and easier.

CE marking is a mandatory mark of compliance for certain products sold within the European Economic Area (EEA) -- that is, the EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway -- and is a manufacturer's declaration that its products meet the requirements of relevant EEA legislation applicable to those products.

Elite Electronic Engineering provides regulatory consulting services as well as accurate and timely CE Mark testing for manufacturers around the world. We have successfully tested for compliance in hundreds of CE Mark applications, and our support staff and engineering team stand ready to assure that your products will meet all the requirements of the European Union’s “New Approach” Directives.

Conformity Assessment Body (CAB)

As a designated CAB (or Notified Body) for the R&TTE Directive, Elite performs all the necessary approval services for European Union bound transmitters and telecom equipment. As a designated CAB for the EMC Directive, Elite services include Technical Construction File (TCF) evaluations.

Regulatory Consulting

Elite can map a conformity assessment strategy that meets the client’s individual compliance needs. Factors such as the type of equipment, the equipment’s specific application, and its relation to other devices within its product family, all determine the most effective conformity assessment strategy. In addition, Elite examines the anticipated product life cycle and any other international approvals sought to develop a comprehensive compliance plan. Rely upon Elite to sort through the broad scope of Directives, standards, and compliance requirements.

Our CE mark testing services benefit from the latest instrumentation and automation to accurately and cost effectively determine a product’s performance against the harmonized European standards. Having an indoor three-meter anechoic chamber, we can process RF emissions and immunity testing without having to move from indoor preliminary testing to an open air test site.

In January 2001, Elite was designated by NIST as a U.S. Conformity Assessment Body (CAB) for the R&TTE Directive and EMC Directive. Elite can now review technical construction files as a Notified Body and issue compliance statements in accordance with the R&TTE Directive Annex IV.

Our CE testing services begin with an inspection and survey of the test item to identify design and construction compliance. We also review schematics, instruction manuals, safety labeling and warnings.

The key to Elite’s services is a comprehensive risk assessment evaluation of all aspects of the machine operation including installation, normal operations, and failure and fault conditions.

Each country manages the electromagnetic spectrum differently. Elite can assess your product to ensure it will comply with regulations in your target markets.
